This just in!
After spending two months in Tennessee, painting his little heart out, and being back in California for only a little over a month, Boy artist M.J. Bivouac is heading BACK to the birthplace of Elvis and Jed Clampett! Yes, they just can't get along without me there.

My Boss calls me into his office on Monday. I was a bit surprised. What did he want to talk to me about? Had I done something wrong?  But once I was in there he asked if I would mind going back to Tennessee for a couple of weeks! You could have knocked me over with a feather! I figured it would be at months if not years before I went back there again. I can't go into any details, but my skills are needed there, and it is nice to be needed.
I'll try to stay in touch if I'm not too busy.
But one thing is for sure, I'm going back to the BULLFISH GRILL! Damned good restaurant.
  • Listening to: The TV in the living room...
  • Reading: the writing on the wall
  • Watching: my life slip away
  • Playing: the odds
  • Eating: my heart out
  • Drinking: it all in.

Congrats! I guess you are sorely needed and they couldn't wait a few months/years to get you back and working.

Just don't over do it. Stay safe!

Well, maybe. I'm off to LAX Sunday morning, and Mrs. Bivouac will probably be latched onto me like a lamprey between now and then. But it will all be "G" rated wife jabber, and requests for last minute choirs before the limo arrives. We cabn see about Friday or Saturday night maybe. What is better for you?

I don't leave until Sunday...Maybe next time. And my idea of hiking, is walking to the Cracker Barrel next to my hotel.

My idea of hiking is strapping on a fifty pound backpack, grabbing my twin trekking poles and heading out five miles one way into the wilderness from where I parked... :D

No time. Too busy to do anything for fun. It's work and nothing more...okay maybe a movie or two on Turner Classic Movies in my hotel room. But that's it.
